• Enterprise Groovy Gradle Plugin 1.0(static compilation by default with optional enforcment)

    Statically compile all the Groovy things!
    Just released Enterprise Groovy Gradle Plugin 1.0:

    One of the biggest complaints about Groovy is that it’s a dynamically compiled language, and that its optional static compilation feels bolted on. The Enterprise Groovy Plugin looks to fix this, by making static compilation the default, and gives you a configuration for optional enforcement. Groovy is a very powerful, and expressive language, and there may be times/places/companies, that want to take advantage of that power, but restrict it, because they have a large team, or have junior developers, etc. This is Where Enterprise Groovy comes in, giving you the tools to rein in some of the dynamic power, but whitelist it where it is needed.

    • You’ve probably heard of MicroProfile, but how do you go from buzz to production? In this code-heavy, interactive presentation, we’ll describe how to use OpenTracing (http://opentracing.io/) with Jaeger (https://www.jaegertracing.io/)  and annotations in MicroProfile and other Microservice architectures to reliably improve and deploy updated versions your applications to OpenShift and Kubernetes in the cloud.  Topics include best practices for performance analysis, maintaining delivery pipelines using the Linux command line, plus tips on the best free OpenTracing tools and SDKs available on GitHub.


      NOTE: This meeting is NOT on our normal "second-Thursday" schedule.


    • The popularity of Amazon's Alexa and Google Home has been inspiring both developers and businesses to think about Voice computing. From a banking assistant on your phone to grocery shopping on your TV - it is truly exciting to see how Voice Interfaces could be used. The challenge, however, is that most Voice Apps are fairly limited in what they can do.

      In this talk, Vineet shares experiences from prototyping and building over a dozen Voice Apps. He shows how practical decisions can make implementing great apps easy, reviews existing tools that have been built and talks about Violet (http://helloviolet.ai/) an Open-Source Voice App Framework designed to help developers create Voice Apps. Violet uses an approach inspired by Angular and React to simplify the complexity needed when manually building using other lower-level frameworks, while providing for more flexibility than the drag-and-drop non-technical tools on the market.
